Delia Ephron uses a sometimes-reticent tone in her delivery of the positives and negatives of growing older. She finds the funny in everyday life and love. Grief, sorrow, and commentary on life in America are sprinkled throughout this new work. Ephron allows both frustration and anger into her voice as she grieves the deaths of her beloved sister, Nora, and her husband, Jerry. Then, just when she is back on her feet emotionally, she faces a life-threatening illness of her own. Ultimately, she finds a way to transmit her hope and eventual joy to the listener. She allows affection, a rising tempo, and even fun into her voice as a new love arrives when she is in her 70s. This memoirist lets listeners know that she will persevere through all life's difficulties. R.O. 2023 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
